Battery Care custom settings

Is it possible to customize the settings of "battery care"? Does Sony provide any app to do so?

 

With my Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact I can only swith the toggle in the android settings if I want to use "battery care".

 

On the website https://www.sonymobile.com/ch-de/products/phones/xperia-1/

the picture shows the possibility to activate a custom mode for battery care for the Xperia X1:

I thougt that the software of these phones is quite similar? Is it possible to get the custom battery care for the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact too? In the best case I would like to have options like never charge more than 80% only start charging if below 70% and so on.

It's not possible with other Xperias that I'm aware of, but I will escalate this, make sure to send your feedback to Sony >>> https://support.sonymobile.com/global-en/contactUs/

Re: Battery Care custom settings

Hi @Neinkob

At first sight this custom mode seems pretty impressive.

It doesn't give choices on battery charging level.

It just gives you the possibility to set fixed times for start and finish of battery care.

So if you set 22:00 and 08:00 it activates battery care when charging after 22:00 and will charge from 90 to 100 between 7 and 8.

Re: Battery Care custom settings

Hi @Neinkob, sorry for the late reply.

It's currently only the Xperia 1 that has the custom feature where you can set the time yourself and regarding if other devices will receive it we will continue to listen to customer feedback and evolve the software for Xperia smartphones.

I will make sure to forward your feedback as I really do think it would be a good addition when you can change it on your own, instead of having to charge the device at roughly the same times every day.

Thank you for your valuable feedback! Slightly smiling Face
